Among from 504 nurses of a military hospital, 140 nurses were selected through a systematic random sampling. Questionnaires of Constant Beugre's for organizational justice, Potter’s for organizational commitment, Scott’s for organizational trust, Hackman & Oldham’s for job satisfaction and finally, Organ’s for the organizational citizenship behavior were used. Regarding the normality of the data, for data analysis the SPSS16 software was used.
